The Football League have published their ‘released and retained list’ this afternoon so we thought we’d have a quick browse to see if we recognised any names.
Up popped former Bracknell Town loanee Jermaine McGlashan who played around seven games on loan at Larges Lane from Staines Town in 2007 before moving on to play in the league with Aldershot Town and Gillingham. We thought we’d start our new ‘where are they now’ feature by finding out what’s happened to the tricky winger since then..
His time in East Berkshire was short, but McGlashan will be remembered by Bracknell Town fans for one terrific display away to Bridgwater Town in an otherwise torrid season for the club in the Southern League.
We featured Jermaine in our ‘ten famous faces to cross paths with Bracknell Town‘ article and said:
The left-winger clearly has talent, but we only saw glimpses at Larges Lane during a seven game loan spell from Staines Town when Jon Underwood was manager.
One game stands out, away to Bridgwater Town. Robins without a win all season at high-flying Bridgy didn’t stand a chance, but McGlashan on his own tore the Southern League side to pieces.
Unplayable on his day, McGlashan successfully secured a contract at Aldershot Town in League 2 where he faced Manchester United in the 2011/12 League Cup and now plays for Gillingham after moving from Cheltenham Town.
Happily for Jermaine, he has tweeted this afternoon that he has a new club, his third since embarking on a football league career in 2010.
